What are Subscriptions Paid by Flexible Payments?

Subscriptions Paid by Flexible Payments are a payment facility within Glofox that enables you to accept payments for clients who prefer to pay for their membership manually each cycle.

Instead of having their card or direct debit details saved for automatic, recurring payments, some of your clients may prefer to make payments for their membership manually, at the end of each billing cycle. Glofox facilitates this for a number of manual payment options at the checkout. This includes cash, bank transfer, account balance, direct debit, and card.

Clients can also pay by card and your staff can select an option at checkout so that their card details are saved to their member profile but are not used by default for automatic, recurring payments in the future. This means that the client will have to come to your gym/studio at the end of each payment cycle to complete the payment manually. 

When a client's next payment is due, an unpaid invoice will appear on the 'Transactions' tab of their member profile in Glofox and they will be able to make a payment.

If the payment due date occurs and the client has not yet made a payment, they will automatically be locked out of access to your gym's services and can only regain access when payment has been made. 

The ability to process subscriptions paid by flexible payments also means that customers in markets with no payment providers linked you now have the ability to set up recurring subscriptions. 

Please note;

  • Flexible Payments are restricted to be used by staff only. In order to make a payment using Subscriptions Paid by Flexible Payments, payment must be made by the client, with one of your staff members, physically, at your gym or studio. Flexible payment options will not be available in the member app
  • Flexible Payment options cannot be accepted for Consecutive Memberships at present
  • Currently, there is no grace period allowed. If a client doesn’t pay on time, their accounts will be locked
  • During checkout, if you select the option to "Use for future payment on this membership" while completing a card or direct debit payment, it will treat the purchase as a regular subscription and auto charge the client each payment cycle
